sorry I haven't been around much I have been out traveling about with friends and enjoying their company and the laptop has taken a back seat again. I thought I had better pull my finger out and write a little post just to keep my hand in really or I know the weeks will creep by. I have been changing more in the house and buying bits and pieces. This week I thought I would show my recent finds for my living room.
We took down the art deco affect wallpaper from the back wall and just painted the whole room cream which although a cold colour it shows of my Tretchoff's and Shabner prints a treat. And also having plain walls means you can brighten up everything by the use of bold textiles, and colours in your furniture etc.
My best buys so far this year for this room have to be my 70's Star burst fully working clock and 70's floor standing Rocket lamp.
|In the same house that I got the clock in I bought the G-Plan style Bush Radiogram I have been after one like this for ages and it works great.|
|I am really happy with the living room now its full of colour and its bright, fun and cosy. I can't seem to stop making crochet blankets and I am currently making one for my sons 13th birthday later this month.|
|I picked up my little Rocket lamp from a friends house sale last year and I had it stored away but last week it came out and along with the floor standing one they look gorgeous at night time lit up.|
|I got this gorgeous puff from my friends house sale the other week its in amazing condition.|
|I got this little 60's wire fruit basket from ebay for £5 again its in amazing condition.|
|We went into Wales to pick up another ebay buy I love this magazine/table rack the top has a wonderful pattern in cream, black and bronze .|
|These German Vases came from another private sale I paid £5 for the 2 :-)|
|My vintage pink sofa is home to my first ever patchwork quilt I made by hand along with a varied pattern of cushions made by me from vintage sheets and curtains :-)|
